We're seeking talented, adaptable people who love solving problems and can get things done. Like networks, but don't want to just configure switches and routers all day? Like programming, but don't want to be a cog in a big software org? Want to make a different in hours/days instead of months/years? Want to be a hero by freeing people from busywork and red tape? Then this is the job for you.

As our Senior Software Engineer, you will develop, enhance, maintain, and support the users of tools that allow Akamai to deploy and maintain a huge worldwide network with a relatively small team of people. These tools help:

  • Automate manual processes

  • Discover and QA our network topologies

  • Report on process and quality metrics

  • Dramatically streamline our supply chain

  • Visualize complex data about the growth of our network and its costs

You will start by learning to be an Akamai Network Infrastructure Engineer, managing deployment and maintenance of equipment in the Akamai network.

Once you see how it's done first-hand, you will start making enhancements to existing tools and then move into development of new tools. Having done the infrastructure engineering job yourself, you will have an intuitive understanding of tool requirements, and you will clearly see the value of the software you work on.
